 Thank ya Barry! I have one other 111 but will save it for next week. It has the backwards liner lock that I can not get used to and I have a fondness for the sidelock. Wish they hadn’t discontinued it.

Once I realized the logic behind the backward liner lock - that it is the same liner as the screwdriver - since the SD is along the side because it's buddy the can opener has to be - so the knife has to be on the left of the liner... I suddenly became perfectly fine with it. 

After the 111mm challenge last month, I don't even have to think about how to unlock the blade.  I do it with two hands, but it's as simple as tying my shoes.

I started out with the liner lock, and eradicated a couple slide locks later.  I have to say, I like that slide lock!

Well, lucky for me, I must have intuitively knew it was the right day to seek out my Ranger and stick it in my pocket with its little cousins. After not having carried it for a couple days, I took it along. I showed it to somebody but I didn't use it today.  8)

Yes, actually she had to take my daughter to the doctor--she fell and hit her head and has a mild concussion. She should be ok, but there'll be a couple weeks of slack-time in her future....

That's definitely a different animal sir.  What's the vintage of that knife?

Barry that knife is still available today,I believe.I bought this about 5 years ago.

I called the rep for Garant tools here in the US. I ordered directly from them.I posted about this many years ago.

There are always a few for sale on the bay,although at a higher price

You may want to do a search as there was a group buy about two years ago.

There may be a more recent link to a better buy than the bay.
